TELLING IT TO THE DAISIES (Harry Warren / Joe Young) Nick Lucas - 1930 Sam Browne - 1930 Annette Hanshaw - 1930 Telling it to the daisies But it never gets back to you. Why am I so bashful, so afraid to part With a lot of love words locked up in my heart For the want of courage foolishly Ive tried To conceal what I reveal by a countryside Telling it to the daisies, Hoping theyll tell you too Pouring my heart out to them But it never gets back to you What do I do on Sunday? Under those lonely skies Same as I do on Monday But they never do put you wise Oh, Im so in love with you, and Oh, I feel youre never gonna know Unless the birdies tell you so I know Im wasting a lot of love time Time and again Im blue Telling it to the daisies But it never gets back to you. (Musical Break) I know Im wasting a lot of love time Time and again Im blue Telling it to the daisies But it never gets back to you. (Contributed by Bill Huntley - March 2007) ***************** TELLING IT TO THE DAISIES (Annette Hanshaw) as recorded by Annette Hanshaw & her Sizzling Syncopaters May 5th 1930 New York Why am I so bashful, So afraid to part, With a lot of love words Locked up in my heart? For the want of courage, Foolishly Ifve tried To conceal what I reveal By a countryside. Telling'it to the daisies, Hoping theyfll tell you. Pouring my heart out to them, But it never gets back to you! Wha' do I do on Sunday Under those lonely skies? Same as I do on Monday, But they never do put you wise! Oh, Ifm so in love with you, And oh, I feel youfre never gonna know, Unless the birdies tell you so! I know Ifm wastin' a lot of love time, Time and again Ifm blue, Tellin' it to the daisies, But it never gets back to you! I keep on tellin' the daisies Of the way that I'm blue, Oh so blue! Pourin' my heart out to them, But it never gets back to you! I keep on tellin' the daisies Underneath the sky, Lonely sky, Tellin' them how I miss you, But they never do put you wise! Oh, I'm so in love with you, It's easily seen that I'm shy! Words just miss When I'm feelin' like this, My tongue is tied! I Keep on wastin' my love time, Just a-waitin' for you, That's all I do! Tellin' to the daisies, But it never gets back to you! That's all! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2012)
